Success and Follow-Through

Sorry for the delayed update, the clock ticked out while I was getting ready to head out for our show on Friday. At which point I was already starting to feel the beginnings of something icky in my throat, but I put up a mental wall of defense so that I could make it through the show to celebrate and perform well. Ever since I got home from that show though, I have been laid out in bed or on the couch, or like today I spent a couple hours sitting on the floor in Barnes & Nobles just for the A/C. 

Being sick in a heatwave is not really my ideal way of spending the weekend. I think it may have had a bit to do with nerves to be honest. All the work and stress that was behind getting ready for our Record Release show, and the outcome of this campaign, it really wore me down, and when it all passed, my body immediately shut down.

That all said, as I'm sure you've all figured out by this point, we made it!! Thanks to all you superstar supporters. It feels really great to know we are surrounded by this great community that comes together to help each other pull off things they otherwise would have never been able to do. Sincerely, we had no other options, this wouldn't have happened without you, and now it's gonna!!! 

So according to Kickstarter, it is going to take between 10 and 14 days for us to receive the funds, at which point we will place the order for the Double Vinyl Gatefold LPs and we will also begin production on all our other rewards (custom T-shirts, posters, stickers, etc...) I will keep you all updated along the way, but in the meantime, I will be putting together surveys to find out how you would like to receive your rewards, and specifics on those rewards (i.e. Preference between CD and Vinyl, T-Shirt Sizes, Show Posters vs. Rising branded posters), your mailing addresses, etc... 

Beyond words, thank you guys so much.
